HEI’s image. Achievements of biological science are an integral part of modern medicine. Major progress of microbiology became possible dew to rapid development of biotechnology – a science of the future. This is why in 2006 BashkirStateMedicalUniversity opened the new specialty “Microbiology”. Today the educational programme “Microbiology” is a special unit within the study field of “Biology”.

Programme presentation. In the course of study, students acquire skills of research work, analysis of acquired information, systematization of the acquired information with the help of up-to-date laboratory equipment and computers. According to the standards of higher education, students undergo academic and working practice in botany, zoology, microbiology, genetics and specialized disciplines.

Students acquire deep knowledge in virology, mycology, parasitology, molecular biology, genetic engineering, immunochemistry and biotechnology; this makes the University’s training quality internationally recognizable. Senior students conduct patent work and experimental research, which are documented and defended in the form of graduation thesis. Graduates have an opportunity to complete their education in master’s courses.

Competitiveness of students. The students of the “Microbiology” programme win prizes of national and international competitions and Olympiads. Young researchers together with their teachers receive invention patents and grants. Members of state examination boards highly appreciate the level of graduation theses and their scientific value. Graduates receive proposals to take postgraduate courses in the Institutes of the RussianAcademy of Sciences and the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Bashkortostan.

Specialists in microbiology work with microorganisms (laboratory diagnosis of infections, development and production of vaccines, sera, diagnostic systems and antibiotics, laboratories of food, chemistry, oil producing and refinery industry enterprises, agriculture and others). Fundamentality of basic education provides an opportunity to conduct educational activity; practical knowledge in molecular and cell technologies enables graduates to conduct research work.
